The Twin Cities Media Alliance ( www.tcmediaalliance.org ) is looking for an advertising, sponsorship and marketing representative for its award-winning local news website, the Twin Cities Daily Planet (www.tcdailyplanet.net ). Responsibilities include developing prospect lists, and selling advertising and sponsorships and other products. Another key part of the job is outreach – helping the Daily Planet build relationships with local independent businesses. This can include showing business owners how to create their own directory listing on the Daily Planet, informing them about Daily Planet classes that can help them use media more effectively, and distributing Daily Planet monthly newsletters, window clings and other marketing materials.
Experience in advertising sales or a related activity is preferred. Applicants should have strong communications and social skills, and a familiarity with the marketing needs of local independent businesses. A familiarity with the mission and content of the Twin Cities Daily Planet is also essential.
We will consider a summer hire, but will give preference to a candidate who can stay on after the initial 10-week period.
To apply, send a resume and cover letter to TCMA executive director Jeremy Iggers at Jeremy@tcmediaalliance.org.
